  • Really liked staying at the Walrus. Defiantly a place for a younger crowd who needs a bit less sleep. The train runs right beside the hostel and runs all night can be noisy . After a few drinks I never had a problem sleeping through it though. Staff are great. Very helpful. Awesome atmosphere and really easy to make new friends.

  • Absolutely great! The staff is very nice. They even went through the trouble of looking for some towels the housekeeper took by mistake. The hostel is very clean, the rooms have lockers and private/public bathrooms. I felt safe and happy! Thanks guys!

  • The staff was awesome, and the bar area downstairs was fun, affordable, and played all the World Cup games.

  • Loved this place! Very good atmosphere an loved having a bar as a lobby. Especially during the World Cup! The staff were so nice and helpful. Would definitely suggest this hostel to YOUNG travelers... Or adventurous older ones :) crappy facilities.... Showers barely work but that's okay! Toilets were fine. The rest makes up for it. AWESOME LOCATION! Next to everything.

  • Rooms and bathrooms were dirty for the 18 person mixed dorm. I used the 3rd/4th floor bathrooms instead. Loved the bar and atmosphere. The staff were absolutely amazing and sooooo helpful.

  • Staff are very friendly. The bar downstair is amazing. It would not be noisy at night because it close at around 1. Also the wifi is good.

  • The staff is absolutely amazing. The beds are comfortable, clean, and the huge breakfast makes a really nice change from some other hostels. You do hear the trains, but they stop in the evening, and you get used to it quite fast. Overall a nice experience!
